What to Expect After Immunotherapy for Bladder Cancer
Here are some of the side effects that are common with immunotherapy for bladder cancer:
Discomfort or burning in the bladder
Feeling the need to urinate often
Flulike symptoms, such as chills, fatigue, or fever
These side effects usually go away within a few days after the treatment.
It's normal to have a slight fever after immunotherapy. However, if you have a lingering fever of 101.5 degrees or higher or other symptoms that last for more than two days, call your doctor. It could be a sign of infection.
